Hanni Ruetzler --snip-- first smelled it and also carefully prodded it with her fork as if testing for rigidity.After chewing, she said she had expected a softer texture and later commented on its crunchy surface.
"There is really a bite to it, there is quite some flavour with the browning. I know there is no fat in it so I didn't really know how juicy it would be, but there is quite some intense taste; it's close to meat, it's not that juicy, but the consistency is perfect.
"This is meat to me... It's really something to bite on and I think the look is quite similar."
Though it had a buttery outside, there wasn't such an "intense meat flavour" on the inside, she added, though even tasting blind she would still say it was meat, and not a soya copy. Link with video and photographs.
Yeah yeah yeah, blah blah blah, - we would all "prefer the real thing while it is cheap" but realistically, is this the future of meat production on a large scale that would feed vegetarians (no cruelty involved), long distance space astronauts (grow your meat rather than take an animal or freeze it for long journeys) or just the world's poor and hungry?
